Video: Real-Time Crime Forecasting Challenge Webinar

This webinar will offer a brief overview of the National Institute of Justice and the data science needs of the criminal justice field. In addition, it will provide details about the Crime Forecasting Challenge, including who can submit, how to retrieve datasets, and the submission categories. The overall goal of the Crime Forecasting Challenge is to harness recent advances in data science to drive innovation in algorithms that advance place-based crime forecasting. Contestants will be provided a real-time dataset from one police jurisdiction with which to work, and from which to develop place-based crime forecasts for that jurisdiction. ​
